Bin collections

Check your rubbish and recycling collection days in Aldershot and Farnborough or report a missed bin.

Temporary changes to bin collections times in Southwood Road and Cove Road, Farnborough

Because of roadworks, from Thursday 21 September we will be starting bin collections at 6.15am for properties in Southwood Road and the one-way section of Cove Road leading towards West Heath roundabout.

We would appreciate if you could put your bins out for this time. If your bin is not out, our contractors will do their best to fetch it from your property.

This change will only last until the roadworks are finished.

We are very sorry for this change of time. We have taken the decision because of the significant problems the roadworks have been causing for the last few weeks.

Information about your collections

We collect rubbish in one vehicle and recycling and glass in separate sections of another vehicle.

Frequency of collections

  • We empty your green rubbish bin once a week
  • We empty your blue recycling bin and glass container once a fortnight. To find out what you can and can't recycle, please see our What to put in your blue recycling bin page. For details of glass recycling, see our Glass recycling page
  • If you have joined our garden waste recycling service, we will collect your bin or bags every fortnight. This will be on the same day as your rubbish bin collection, but  on the week we do not collect your recycling.  For more information about garden waste collections, please see our garden waste recycling service pages

Timing of collections

  • Collections start at 7am in most roads and are finished by mid-afternoon.  Please put out your bins and glass containers at the edge of your property (by the footpath, if applicable) before 7am on your collection day, or the night before
  • For safety reasons, collections start earlier in these roads:
    - Fleet Road, Farnborough - 6.30am
    - Victoria Road, Farnborough - 6am
    - Ash Road, Aldershot - 6.30am
    - Lower Farnham Road, Aldershot - 6am

Please make sure your bins and glass containers are ready for collection, before these times

How to get the best out of the rubbish and recycling service

  • We have a 'no excess waste' policy. This means we will not collect extra rubbish left by your rubbish bin. Please make sure your bin lid is closed
  • Please see our what you can put in your blue recycling bin page to make sure that you are recycling everything that you can
  • Please do not put any garden waste in your green or blue bins.  You can compost garden waste at home, take it to your local household waste recycling centre or you can join our garden waste recycling service
